Windmill Bracelet

Windmill Bracelet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to work loom or square stitch and how to attach a clasp

Pattern Description:

I was adapting a quilt pattern called Ocean Waves for beadwork. Peyote/brick stitch, which I usually design in, just wasn't working, so I switched to loom/square. Needless to say Ocean Waves didn't happen, but this facsimile of a Dutch windmill gradually emerged and was tweaked to this pattern.

The three repeats shown measure 6.3 inches long. You can add partial repeats or solid color on each end to make it longer if desired.
I hope you enjoy working this design.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 1 inch wide by desire length


  • size 11 seed beads in 4 colors. amounts vary with color

You Will Also Need:

  • Beading needle, scissors, beading thread of your choice
